A very good workout today. My chest strength is climbing slowly, but it is still increasing. I'll go up to 280 on decline next week. I've been stuck at the 100 pound dumbbells for a while. I'll stick with them again next week, but if I do not progress, I am going to drop down to the 95 pound dumbbells.

Lunges 185 X 4, 4 View Exercise

I squeezed out one more rep on squats than last week. That was intense! I'm getting into the groove with front squats. I found that on stiff leg deadlifts, the farther away from my legs I keep the bar, the more it hits the hamstrings. Before, I had the bar too close to my shins, which put more stress on my lower back.

Dumbbell Hold (Grip) 120 pound dumbbells for 35 seconds, 20 seconds

I must have slept on my neck wrong because it was stiff and sore. I didn't do deadlifts today because I did not want to worsen my neck. In a way, I'm glad my neck was hurt, because I found out how great bent over rows feel with an underhand grip. It had a different feel than the standard bent over rows. I will be incorporating this exercise into my next routine. Dumbbell holds are brutal! That was the longest 35 seconds of my life.
